Paradise Lost morphed from doom/death journeyband to gothic metal pioneer nearly 25 years ago, experimenting with electronica even. Back to headbanging basics, 14th LP The Plague Within finds the Yorkshire quintet in full-frontal metal mode. A wave of guitars swirl all their genre pledges into a lighter-waving metal anthemry of thickly sensual miasma. Nick Holmes responds with both a flesh-eating growl and melancholy croon, gracefully navigating the roiling waters of "Sacrifice the Flame" and "An Eternity of Lies."
